Use Of Dots In HTTP Headers Causes These Headers ToO Be Stripped From Requests (Doc ID 2748855.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Insurance Policy Administration Cloud Service - Version NA and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Blocking exchanges like HICAPS and generic blocking exchanges fail because the HTTP headers that drive the blocking behavior are stripped by WTSS, a networking component in the cloud infrastructure. According to the cloud
team, while having "." characters in header names is [compliant with the RFC|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7230#page-22] generally anything that is not [a-zA-Z-] get's stripped for security reasons ¿ Specifically anything
with the "." or the "_" character are stripped by convention.
The agreed solution is to replace the dots ( . ) in the headers by dashes (-).
